The Draw

The Draw id now done by Badminton Europe on March 19th 2019 (WR date used March 12th) is published with first day schedule on March 24th 2019.



To make it clear how the promotion process goes, we´d like to publish the message from Badmininton Europe Confederation below.

For Grade 3 tournaments and Junior International Tournaments (BEC Elite, Junior and U17 Circuit)
As BWF states, Badminton Europe can have its own regulations/procedures/timelines for implementation at BEC Elite, Junior and U17 Circuit tournaments.
Therefore we have instructed all our referees that promotions from reserve list to qualification/main draw can take place up until the Team Managers Meeting, but not later.

In accordance with our recently published updated Circuit Regulations, our organizers and referees are instructed to publish the draw and the first day’s schedule no later than Sunday after the draw has been made.This early publication is made due to the fact that we wish to give the players and their entourage the best possible conditions to prepare early for the tournament.
As this early publication is about 10-11 days before the start of the tournament, it is our clear opinion that this is too soon to stop accepting promotions from the reserve list. We are already experiencing long waiting lists and we want to give non-accepted players the opportunity of being accepted into the tournaments.

As usual, the promotion of players in the qualifying tournament to the main draw, can still take place after the Team Managers Meeting following the BWF General Competition Regulations.
